It's the Edinburgh Festival!
There's the Fringe with over 40,000 performances, the Book Festival with over 700 performances, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, many Art exhibitions, the Craft Fair and the official Edinburgh International Festival itself.
Douglas gives up his gardening duties during the Festival to provide a taxi service (private hires only). He enjoys watching the passers-by while Mr. E. and I go to the shows.
And this is me, at the Festival, my head spinning with excitement, surrounded by explosions of colour, the pavement dancing beneath my feet.
Douglas's top Festival tip - Always sit at the back, then if the show is boring you can catch up on your sleep.

Linking to the "Three Muses" challenge "Use text in your artwork"
and to "Journal Journeys" theme "What summer means to you". Many things mean summer to me, but in Edinburgh, one of them is the four week Arts Festival which takes place every year.
